In Topic: 2016 Trade Deadline Thread

Today, 12:58 PM

 

Kevin Shattenkirk and Victor Hedman are possible options, just to throw some names out there.  It's debatable if Shattenkirk is really a top-pairing guy but he would certainly be an upgrade over a lot of our current D.  Hedman might be gone if TB somehow re-signs Stamkos.

 

lol Hedman?  Talk about untouchable.

 

He's more valuable to TB than Stamkos.


Either we take a big risk and trade for a soon to be UFA. (Buff, Yandle, Shattenkirk)

 

Or we overpay at free agency.

 

People need to get out of la la land where they expect playoff teams...in our division...who are directly competing with us...to deal us there best players.

I actually like it.

 

The other one was far too cluttered with crap I didn't need to see.

If I had to put money on it - just by the way things have played out I'm going to go ahead and say that Larkin will win the Calder for sure (100%). He's simply attracted way too much attention at this point. 

 

Unless he hits a wall the second half of the season that is. 

 

“Lots of people talk about the wall and the NHL schedule is certainly difficult and can be a grind for sure, whether you played college or junior or any of that,” Blashill said. “I don’t believe in the wall. I think if you allow yourself to hit a wall, you hit a wall, but I don’t believe it has to happen. 

“I look at what Dylan did last year. If you think about the experience he went through last year – playing college hockey as a freshman (at Michigan), playing in the world junior tournament (for the United States), finishing his year, having to make an extremely difficult life decision, playing in the worlds, coming to Grand Rapids and playing in the (AHL Calder Cup) playoffs – there isn’t going to be a more excruciating year than that.

The cap is going to be tight enough with our upcoming RFAs.

 

Swapping Ericsson and Phaneuf would screw us in a couple years. Probably sooner.


Also I'm pretty sure Toronto can't retain money on any contract till next season.

 

They're already at the max.
